Mike Moss, his milk and his meat.

Mike Moss converted to dairy farming organically 15 years ago. He opted to go organic to take pressure off the farming system, the animals and the people involved and he's enjoyed the premium Fonterra pays for organic milk. However last summer's drought meant he couldn't feed his cows and made him re-evaluate the way he'd been farming.
